    1. What is the name of the enzyme that combines carbon dioxide and water to create carbonic acid?

    2.Contraction of just the _________________ is enough to increase the volume of the thoracic cavity in pulmonary ventilation.

    3.Internal respiration takes place between the Blank 1 blood and the Blank 2 cells

    4.What muscles allow for exhalation when they relax? the Blank 1 and the Blank 2 Blank 3

    5. Chemoreceptors in the periphery sense changes in pH or PCO2 of the Blank 1, which will trigger the Blank 2 area in the medulla to increase contraction of thoracic muscles, leading to Blank 3, helping to expel excess carbon dioxide.
